YSULS team presented the developed PhD program during the local meeting at YSMU. The main points were discussed among all participants and the improvement steps were identified for all other program developments.
Aside the development phase, the external review process was also discussed. It was agreed to formulate expert panels with involvement of 1 EU, 2 local and 1 PhD student. A group of reviewers involving MoES, RA SCC, EQ, WUS and 1 HEI representatives will be also established. The process will be coordinated by ANQA.
For this purpose the universities are asked to prepare self-evaluation reports and to submit by the end of September. The visits of experts will be organized by the end of November 2016. After the reports will be prepared and submitted.
To ensure the smooth flow of the process two additional trainings will be conducted for the internal and external assessors.
